I've made a career out of avoiding Microsoft. I started programming
AT&T SysV machines in the early 80s and have been lucky enough to have
been able to focus on UNIX and Linux for the last 30 years or so.
I have no problem with using non-FLOSS software when necessary; I used to
have an NVidia video card in my studio machine, and never blinked at tainting
my kernel with their proprietary driver. I'm also a happy customer of
AATranslator, which I had no issue paying for (since it runs well under
WINE). I'm also happy to be an Ardour contributor.
My issues are always with companies that try to keep you in a stranglehold
with their locked-down tech. I'll never give a dime to Apple or MS.
I want people to make money off their efforts, but I don't want to have
it extorted from me.
